When buying a ring, it can be hard to know what size to get. But, with a little research and aoottered trial and error, you’ll soon be able to find the best fit. Luckily, you won’t have to go through this alone. Check out our comprehensive guide on how to measure your ring size.
Know your ring size
First and foremost, you’ll want to know your ring size. To do so, find a ring that fits your finger and measure the circumference of the ring. You can also use a ring sizer, a device that can measure a ring and determine its size.
For most people, the best way to measure your ring size is with a tape. You can find a tape at most department stores, jewellers, and many online jewellery stores.
If you don’t have access to a tape, you can also measure your ring size using a ruler and a soft piece of cloth. Start by laying the ruler on the cloth and measuring the length of the ruler. Then, place the ruler on your finger and measure the distance from the bottom edge of the ruler to your finger.
Check the size guide
One of the best ways to ensure you get the right size ring is by consulting a ring size guide.
Size guides will list the minimum and maximum sizes for a variety of factors, including but not limited to:
· The circumference of the ring
· The width of the ring
· The depth of the ring
These factors are important because they help you determine the “average” size of the ring. Once you have the average, you can easily find the right size based on the chart.
If you’re having trouble finding your exact measurements, you can also make some guesses. Start by finding a ring that’s a little too big and a little too big usually when you’re in between sizes.
Next, measure the inside of the ring (the part that sits on your finger). Remember to measure the length of the inside of the ring, not the outside.
From there, you can use the following equations to estimate your ring size:
women’s ring size = men’s size + 4
children’s ring size = adult ring size + 2
women’s ring size = men’s size – 4
children’s ring size = adult ring size – 2
Find a jeweller
If you have access to a jeweller, you can also have them size your ring. Most jewellers will size rings for free, so there’s no reason not to take advantage of it.
Most jewellers will also have a variety of ring sizers that you can use to measure your finger. These devices will help you determine your ring size without having to bring in multiple different types of tape measures.
Finding your ring size can be a bit confusing, but with a little bit of effort, you’ll be able to get it sorted out.
